WestJet will fly non-stop from Toronto to Mérida once a week starting Dec. 15, the Canadian airline announced.
Previously, flyers from the major Ontario hub flew into Cancun, only to take a four-hour-plus bus ride to reach the capital city. Or they endured layovers in the U.S. or Mexico City.
The airline listed several “new destinations,” including Boston, Sarasota and the Mexican surf resort Huatulco.
WestJet Airlines Ltd. flies to 90 destinations in Canada, the United States, Europe, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. Founded in 1996, it is the second-largest Canadian air carrier, behind Air Canada.
WestJet joins United and AeroMexico in flying direct from the north of the border.
One-way tickets are listed today at $237.01 CAD.
